Fresh Organics Review and Giveaway

Do you worry about what you put on your body?  Skin specifically?  It is, after all, your largest body organ!  In my venture for "good for you" bath products, I found Fresh Organics.  I love that their solid business principle is that any product they make is 100% safe for anyone, newborn on up!  I think that is amazing because if I can't put it on my newborn's tender skin, why would I want to put it on my own?  That has always been something baffling to me, and I found a company that feels the same way!

Fresh Organics was kind enough to send me a couple of their products.  I received the Lavender Vanilla Exfoliating Scrub and Lavender Vanilla Bath Petals.  (Can you tell I'm a fan of lavender??)



I loooove my shower time.  When I get lucky, it's the only quiet time I have (though typically my 3 year old interrupts in any way he can think of, haha).  I was pleasantly surprised to see how large this bottle of scrub really is!  It smells WONDERFUL, light and refreshing with a smidgen of relaxation, which is just what I like.  Here's the inside scoop about it from Fresh Organics:

"Almost all commercial scrubs use some variation of Sodium Lauryl or Laureth Sulfate, which can cause permanent eye damage (even without getting in eyes) and can penetrate the skin to affect systemic tissues and cause damage to the immune system. Organic Bath Exfoliating Scrub contains no variation of SLS but utilizes more expensive and gentler cleansing agents and well as active enzymes and finely crushed seeds. Our Exfoliating Scrub is also free of artificial fragrances, color and petroleum bi-products and uses a very safe preservative system that contains no Parabens, formaldehyde or other suspected carcinogens."

Wouldn't you rather put something like that on your skin than a bottle of carcinogens?  Yeah, me too.





Though I haven't gotten the chance to take a bath with my Lavender Vanilla Bath Petals (not by my own choice!  I can't wait to get a quiet minute without kiddos crying or banging on the door, haha) I put them in Talker Man's bath.  He thought it was pretty awesome that he had leaves in the bath tub.  I thought it was pretty awesome that he went right to sleep afterwards as bedtime has been a bit of a challenge lately.  Here's the "good for you" tidbit from Fresh Organics!

"Almost all commercial bubble bath uses Cocamide DEA - a foaming agent that is a known hormone disrupter and carcinogen. Also most bubble bath contains some variation of Sodium Lauryl or Laureth Sulfate, which can cause permanent eye damage (even without getting in eyes) and can penetrate the skin to affect systemic tissues and cause damage to the immune system. Organic Bath Bubble Bath Petals contain no variation of SLS or DEA but utilize more expensive and gentler foaming agents. We use natural colors and fragrance - not petroleum bi-products. We also use a very safe preservative system that contains no Parabens, formaldehyde or other suspected carcinogens."

Again, I feel much better about this bubble bath than any other!  To make the pot even sweeter, there is currently an Earth Day sale going on!  The sale makes these normally pricier organic products within reach of even a stingy budget!


Win it!
